UK: Nottinghamshire-based Interflex has launched its Ocean range of materials to reduce noise, vibration and harshness in rolling stock.

The lightweight mouldable material is made from 100% polyester, 80% of which is recycled with 1 kg being equivalent to 80 recycled plastic water bottles. It can also be recycled at the end of its life.


‘We are excited to be launching this innovative new product for the rail industry which has already attracted significant interest from large manufacturers’, said Managing Director Jim Griffin. ’Not only is it a high-performance acoustic absorbent material, its lightweight properties also make it ideal for manufacturers looking to reduce weight.

‘At Interflex our focus is very much on sustainable innovation, and as railways are the most sustainable mode of transport available to the public, this new product is a perfect fit.’
